The Arlington Baths Club in Glasgow opened in 1871 as a private swimming club. We have evidence that the Turkish suite, inspired by the Moorish architecture of the Alhambra and built in the mid 1870s, was constructed in concrete by Victorian builder, inventor and businessman, Charles Drake.
In this recording, his great grandson, David Scott Cowan, describes Drake's work.
